you see i tried to do a timer shot the other night. i read somewhere that you should try to get some "everyday" shots, so you remember the things you do regularly. well. i am here to tell you as the kids get older, bedtime gets less and less routine. i feel kinda bad about that. i always, always, always read bedtime stories to the older kids, when they were little...and now that the bigger kids are reading their own books before bed, i have become lazy and busy with other things, so a LOT less bedtime reading is going on to the younger children. BOO. i am trying to do better. i really am.
this was the *best* shot. of about 4. [which isn't even saying a lot, because it's pretty bad] and then. there were tears. so it had to stop. in all the chaos, campbell got hurt. or her feelings did anyway. so. then i tried reading the story...but she was sobbing down the hall. so it didn't even work on this night. ;(( regardless, this was my attempt at remembering that i did read to my kids. sometimes in my bed, but not so much anymore, because we just DO.NOT.FIT without someone falling out on the floor. for real.
so. then i gave my camera to calli. she's 5. and this is what she got. love them. karolina had just woken up from a nap. she requires a few extra snuggles at that time. :)
and this one is my FAVORITE...
